With a commitment to educating the whole person, our students are inspired to pursue passions and empowered to be strong leaders who are fully prepared for life’s opportunities. Our unique educational philosophy stresses an exploration of spirituality, a respect for diversity, a passion for stewardship and, as our college motto, “Virtus cum Scientia” (Virtue and Knowledge United) states, a devotion to the unity of faith and reason.

We aim to transform ourselves, our communities and our world. Join us.
